does anyone remember the cartoon show the popples?  The fuzzy little animals with pouches on their backs that they curled into and popped around? They all had their own little personalities. i loved that show- so this year i was a rock star popple:

i made everything except for the pants. Unfortunately you can't see my tail in these photos- but it was made out of the same material as the hat (which were made from furry bags i got at the dollar store). The bass guitar has a zipper on the back side  so i could use it as a bag to carry my stuff around in. Everything was made from old clothes i cut up and sewed that i bought at the dollar a pound store- super cheap- and super awesome- this costume cost me less then $10 to make!

Such a great costume idea! I bet no one else had the same costume! Geez, I had the pink rockstar popple as a kid. Actually, I think I still have it! Very cute!
